    I see one every once in a while. They aren't dangerous, they eat silverfish. So you're trading one creepy crawlie for another.

    you can touch it nothing will happen. it's like touching a dog, but beware that dog might bite Next is it one of the centipedes with the very long elegant legs? if so then its going to be painful when it bites and they only grow to be 2 inches or so. Last don't mess with centipedes unless you know what you are doing

    3 inches? Wow, that's small. In my town, they're around 12 inches. It's quite satisfying when you squeeze it. But then all this stuff oozes out...

    Depends on the species of centipede.

    This one, yes definitely not good:

    Those are the soft ones you can crush them easily. You should see the black monsters I get, you cant even kill them. I dont know if they are dangerous.
